On the Topic of Westerns or Lack Thereof

4Player-"Red Dead Redemption is easily among my favorite games of all time. As a game, it was rich with experiences and mechanics to master while at the same time striking a perfect balance between scripted and dynamic events. The world felt alive and the game didn't constantly fall back on shooting mechanics to keep it afloat. I could spend hours roaming the wilderness hunting wildlife, searching for hidden sub-plots, or performing menial tasks around the ranch. A more subdued and sophisticated experience to be sure but one that scratched an itch that is rarely attended to." (Call of Juarez: Bound In Blood, Call of Juarez: Gunslinger, PC, PS3, Red Dead Redemption, Xbox 360)
